A Conservative Man Comes Out to His Leftie Parents! (Video)


Authored by Tami Jackson | on

Conservative Comes Out

Ah the tolerant, long-suffering Left. Progressives preach inclusivity and acceptance of any and all lifestyles and beliefs. Yes, that’s what they preach. But their actions don’t match the message. In other words, Lefties don’t walk the talk. At least not THAT tolerance talk.

Oh sure liberals, Socialists, love love, love other Lefties and Socialists. But confront them with any opposing views, say conservative values, and the façade fades quicker than a puff of smoke. 

Remember fading pop-star Madonna proclaiming, “Yes, I have thought an awful lot about blowing up the White House.”

Wowsie!

Apparently Ms. Madonna “Material Girl” Louise Ciccone has never heard of 18 U.S. Code § 871 which states (emphasis mine):

(a) Whoever knowingly and willfully deposits for conveyance in the mail or for a delivery from any post office or by any letter carrier any letter, paper, writing, print, missive, or document containing any threat to take the life of, to kidnap, or to inflict bodily harm upon the President of the United States, the President-elect, the Vice President or other officer next in the order of succession to the office of President of the United States, or the Vice President-elect, or knowingly and willfully otherwise makes any such threat against the President, President-elect, Vice President or other officer next in the order of succession to the office of President, or Vice President-elect, shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than five years, or both.

Hmmm. That right there Missy M indicates that your little tirade at the despicable “Women’s March” could have easily been a federal offense earning you a fine or imprisonment or both! Got orange?

I could cite numerous examples, including the death threats I’ve personally received from radical liberals AND from a Muslim extremist.

My response?

I like the line Sandra Bullock speaks playing the part of Leigh Anne Tuohy in The Blind Side. A gang-banger has just called her b*tch and “Leigh Anne’s” mouth clenches, she turns around and calmly gives the young thug a well-deserved, fierce mama bear tongue-lashing:

No, you hear me, BITCH!. You threaten my son, you threaten me. You so much as cross into downtown, you will be sorry. I’m in a prayer group with the D.A., I’m a member of the N.R.A. and I’m always packing.

That’s a little like me. I know people in high places (including current and former special operators), I pray, support the NRA, and I pack heat. So no worries. But back to the subject at hand.

The truth is that The Left, the Progressives/Socialists, are not in the least open-minded or tolerant unless you espouse their very same lefty worldview, in which case that is not even tolerance!!! Group-think yes; tolerance no.

I have heard liberals call conservatives “haters.” Just in general. They may not know any conservatives personally, but they seem to know that conservatives are “haters.”

Methinks The Left doth protest too much. Take out the log in your own eye, you perverted people.

Every conservative I know loves people and if they’re packing heat, would protect your miserable, whiny, safe-space seeking self if a violent situation arose. The trouble is, most of the violence emanates from gatherings of radical Lefties.

Well, take a look at this video about what happens when a conservative man has the big “coming out” talk with his dad. It contains a few colorful metaphors, but you’ll get the point. (Oh and cat lovers, such as myself, it’s a spoof and a real cat does not actually die):

Feds go to bat for Muslim truckers fired for refusing to do their jobs


star transport

Last month, it was a Muslim flight attendant who sued her airline after it suspended her for refusing to serve booze. This month it’s two Muslim truck drivers, except in this case, handling booze — which is forbidden under Islamic law — was pretty much their entire job description.

The pair, Mahad Abass Mohamed and Abdkiarim Hassan Bulshale, had the backing of the federal government in their religious discrimination lawsuit against their former employer, who rightfully terminated them for refusing to make beer deliveries.Picture1

The Washington Examiner notes that the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission won $240,000 in damages to the former drivers, both of Somali heritage, who were fired in 2009.

The EEOC said that Star Transport Inc., a trucking company based in Morton, Ill., violated their religious rights by refusing to accommodate their objections to delivering alcoholic beverages.

“EEOC is proud to support the rights of workers to equal treatment in the workplace without having to sacrifice their religious beliefs or practices,” EEOC General Counsel David Lopez announced Thursday. “This is fundamental to the American principles of religious freedom and tolerance.”

The EEOC argued that Star Transport could have easily reassigned the men to other jobs, but the reverse argument — that Mohamed and Bulshale could have just as easily sought employment in an area that doesn’t compromise their religious principles — is no less valid.

The jury awarded Mohamed and Bulshale $20,000 each in compensatory damages and $100,000 each in punitive damages. The judge awarded each about $1,500 in back pay.

Bulshale said following the judgment, “This case makes me proud to be American.” Really? What would he know about that?

Christian school told to have Muslim imam lead assemblies

The following report is disturbing on so many levels. If we fail in November to take over the Senate, and keep up seats in the House, you will see what is happening in England, here in America. As the Leftist/Marxist/Socialist/Extreme-Liberal/Christian-Hating/Political-Correctness-Worshipping/Democrat’s have their way of turning our country into a Cloward-Piven/Sail Alinsky style Socialist European entity.

Please read the following with great concern. As you pray for America, let’s also pray for revival in England.

A1ENDA Headmaster takes pupils and staff assembly in modern school hallBritain’s official education inspector has informed an independent Christian school that it is out of step with “British values” prescribed by the government and must invite someone from another faith, such as a Muslim imam, to lead assemblies or it risks being closed.

The threat comes amid a series of new school inspections imposed by the government in response to a “Trojan horse” scandal in which several public schools in Birmingham, England, were taken over by Muslim managers who imposed Islamic education standards.

The U.K.’s Office for Standards in Education, Children’s Services and Skills, known as Ofsted, then established new rules requiring the active promotion of “British values” such as tolerance.

The Christian Institute, which is planning a legal challenge to the regulations, said the school was told by Ofsted “to invite a leader from another religion, such as an imam, to lead assemblies.”comment 01

Simon Calvert, deputy director of the Christian Institute, said evidence is already emerging “of how the new regulations are requiring Ofsted inspection teams to behave in ways which do not respect the religious ethos of faith schools.”

“The new requirements are infringing the rights of children, parents, teachers, and schools to hold and practice their religious beliefs,” he said.

Opposition also has come from the National Association of Jewish Orthodox Schools, which said it was “appalled” by the demands.

According to a report by John Bingham, religious affairs editor for the London Telegraph, inspectors claimed the school, which was identified only as a “successful Christian school,” was failing to promote “tolerance.”comment 02

cause of deathBingham said inspectors warned the head that the school would be downgraded from “good” to “adequate” for failing to “actively promote” harmony between different faiths because it had failed to bring in representatives from other religions.

The report said there would be further inspections that could ultimately lead to it being closed.”

A spokeswoman for the government agency told the newspaper: “Under Ofsted’s revised guidance for the inspection of schools, inspectors now pay greater attention to ensuring that schools provide a broad and balanced education for their pupils, so that young people are well prepared for the next stage in their education, or for employment and for life in modern Britain.”

Included in the evaluation are the spiritual, moral, social and cultural perspectives of students.

The agency spokeswoman said: “This includes, among other factors, pupils’ acceptance and engagement of different faiths and beliefs, and their understanding and appreciation of the range of different cultures within school and further afield.”

WND previously reported the rules were being blamed for requiring teachers to “challenge” the religious beliefs of parents “in the name of equality.”

The institute said a report from Peter Clarke, the former chief of counter-terrorism for the Metropolitan Police, said school children in the “Trojan Horse” schools werecp 11 encouraged to express vocal support for anti-Christian remarks and Christmas was banned.

The report found a “coordinated, deliberate and sustained action, carried out by a number of associated individuals, to introduce an intolerant and aggressive Islamic ethos into a few schools in Birmingham.”America are you paying attention

But the institute said the reaction was an overreach, and the rules call for teachers to “actively promote” the rights defined in the Equality Act 2010, including sexual orientation and transsexual rights.

The schools also “will be required to challenge parents” on their values if they contradict what the government has determined is “equality,” a legal analysis concluded.

Steve King Mean Tweets
more tolerantCongressman Steve King (R-IA), a pro-liberty, pro-Constitution favorite among many in the Tea Party movement, made light of some of the more hateful tweets he has received on his Twitter account.

In his hilarious video, done in the familiar format of a comedic segment ran frequently on Jimmy Kimmel Live, Rep. King reads several whoppers including, “You’re garbage. Cheers,” and the highly unintelligent argument from a typical lefty (or possible RINO) who just says, “You’re a butthead.”

Rep. King gets in a good dig on “Common Core” on one tweet from one poorly worded tweet, and even King’s wife, Marilyn enters to read a few and laugh along.

Bloomberg: Universities becoming bastions of intolerance

Bloomberg blasts liberal censorship

STORY HIGHLIGHTS

  • Former Mayor Michael Bloomberg blasts what he calls silencing of ideas
  • Bloomberg says liberals often silence voices “deemed politically objectionable”
  • At Harvard commencement, he also blasts impasse between Republicans and Democrats

(CNN) — Former New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg, delivering Thursday’s commencement speech at Harvard University, criticized what he described as a disturbing trend of liberals silencing voices “deemed politically objectionable.”

“This spring, it has been disturbing to see a number of college commencement speakers withdraw — or have their invitations rescinded — after protests from students and — to me, shockingly — from senior faculty and administrators who should know better,” Bloomberg said.

The billionaire former mayor cited an October speech during which his ex-police commissioner, Ray Kelly, was shouted down by students at Brown University. The university canceled Kelly’s speech when protesters opposed to the police department’s stop-and-frisk policy shouted down and interrupted Kelly.

Bloomberg noted other universities have had speakers back out. He pointed to Rutgers, where former U.S. Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice withdrew amid protests, and Smith College, where International Monetary Fund chief Christine Lagarde withdrew after a student petition.

“In each case, liberals silenced a voice — and denied an honorary degree — to individuals they deemed politically objectionable. This is an outrage,” Bloomberg said to applause.

An even more glaring example of failing to listen to the opposing side, Bloomberg said, was the longstanding impasse between Republicans and Democrats in Washington, where every major question facing the nation is decided “not by engaging with one another but by trying to shout each other down.”

Bloomberg, who in April pledged $50 million to gun control groups he helped organize, spoke about Washington politicians’ handling of gun issues, noting Congress has barred the national Centers for Disease Control and Prevention from conducting studies of gun violence, a prohibition that was recently extended to the National Institute of Health.

“What are they afraid of?” he asked.

“Do you really want an answer Mr. Bloomberg, or is all this a prelude to your campaigning for President? If in fact you really want an answer, I’ll give you my perspective; Unless you’re a “die-hard” Liberal Leftist, the very idea of the national Centers for Disease Control and Prevention conducting research about gun violence screams bias. The Leftist/Marxist/Socialist tyrannical force has already determined the outcome of that study. All they want is to get their deceptive hands on the money to do the research. You see, Mr. Bloomberg, most of America is smarter than you and your Leftist comrades think we are. Any more questions?” JB

The Senate this year delayed a vote on President Obama’s nominee for surgeon general, Dr. Vivek Murthy, because the Harvard physician “had the audacity to say gun violence is a public health crisis that should be tackled,” Bloomberg said to applause.Propaganda Alert

“Let’s get serious: When 85 Americans are killed with guns every single day, and shootings regularly occur at our schools and universities, including last week’s tragedy at Santa Barbara, it would be almost medical malpractice to say anything else,” Bloomberg said.

“Mr. Bloomberg sir? Please show us the FACTS that back up your quote of 85 Americans being killed with guns everyday?” JB

The former mayor, who received honorary degrees from Harvard along with seven others — including former President George H.W. Bush and music icon Aretha Franklin — spoke of the role of universities as places where people of all backgrounds and beliefs can freely debate ideas without that “sacred trust” being threatened by the “tyrannical tendencies of monarchs, mobs and majorities.”

He recalled when protesters came out several years ago against the development of a mosque a few blocks from ground zero in lower Manhattan.

“We protected their right to protest,” Bloomberg said. “But they could not have been more wrong. And we refused to cave in to their demands. The idea that government would single out a particular religion, and block its believers — and only its believers — from building a house of worship in a particular area is diametrically opposed to the moral principles that gave rise to our great nation, and the constitutional protections that have sustained it.”

BECAUSE IT IS AN INSULT TO EVERY PERSON THAT WERE MURDERED THAT DAY, AS WELL AS THEIR GREIVING FAMILY MEMBERS. Islam ALWAYS erects a Mosque on, or near the grounds of any of their conquest. THAT’S WHY, sir!” JB

He added, “If you want the freedom to worship as you wish, to speak as you wish, and to marry whom you wish, you must tolerate my freedom to do so — or not do so — too. What I do may offend you. You may find my actions immoral or unjust. But attempting to restrict my freedoms in ways that you would not restrict your own leads only to injustice.”

“There is hope for you yet, or is that the last smoldering vestiges of your one time conservative beliefs?” JB

Bloomberg compared the intolerance of ideas prevalent in the country today to “McCarthy’s Red Scare” in the 1950s and its destruction of thousands of lives. In the 2012 presidential race, he said, the overwhelming majority of campaign contributions from Ivy League faculty went to Barack Obama.

“Today, on many college campuses, it is liberals trying to repress conservative ideas, even as conservative faculty members are at risk of becoming an endangered species,” he said. (“AGREED!” JB)

After the speech, Sarah Surrain, who completed her master’s degree in education, said Bloomberg was bold to criticize universities as too liberal.

“I thought it was really thoughtful,” she said of the speech. “It was nice that it wasn’t just platitudes.”

Harvard Law School graduate Jared Nicholson said the speech was “a great message … about tolerance of different ideas and diversity of opinions.”

Greg Silverberg, an engineering school graduate, said he welcomed the former mayor’s viewpoint.

“He gave some interesting perspectives on conservative views in universities that I hadn’t heard before coming from a liberal undergraduate institution myself,” he said. “It was eye-opening for a lot of people.”

Before the speech, Cary Williams, president of the Association of Black Harvard Women, questioned why Bloomberg was selected as speaker, because, she said, the NYPD’s stop-and-frisk program “disproportionately has targeted people of color in New York.”

“It’s basically racial profiling,” junior Keyanna Wigglesworth said of the New York policing policy under Bloomberg. “And so it’s unsettling to me, (for) someone to speak who advocates a racist policy when you want students of color on campus to feel comfortable. It’s confusing and I don’t think its what Harvard stands for.”

Why Are LGBT People So Hacked With Christians?

[From the book, The Cross & the Constitution in the Age of Incoherence, 2012, Tate Publishing]

Perhaps secular ears will hear …

Not long ago a gay couple in West Hollywood hung Sarah Palin in effigy. That image will loom large in the minds of the Palin children for many years, perhaps for a lifetime. In recent days at demonstrations in Palm Springs we’ve seen gay protestors knock a cross out of the hands of a grandmother, stomp all over it, and scream in her face. She is filing charges.

We’ve seen homosexual protestors invade church services Sunday morning and rail against people, shouting threats. We’ve seen what appears to be Anthrax mailed to LDS churches. We have seen protests throughout southern California and threats of more violence and demonstrations. And we have heard LGBT leaders call blacks ignorant bigots for voting in favor of Proposition Eight in California.

All this is no way to build consensus, invite understanding, or forward the cause of mutual respect.

It appears we are incapable of engaging a rational discussion when it comes to the topic of homosexuality.

Many of us in the traditional faith community want to challenge those in the LGBT community to consider: perhaps Christians are not hate-filled homophobes but instead rational people with a legitimate point of view. Why are you so intolerant of our point of view? Why do you give yourselves permission to do violence against us?

Maybe gay marriage is unhealthy for everyone? Regardless, don’t people have a right to an opinion? Do they not have the right to vote their conscience on issues central to the organization of society?

The answer is no if we listen to contemporary gay activists.

For those more moderate in approach and sensibility, please try to understand where Christians are coming from. Quell the emotion for a time and try to come at this with hardcore objectivity and rational inquiry.

Our belief is God is very clear in his Word.

People have the freedom to accept his Word or not. Neither God nor man is forcing anyone to do, or not do, something or other. Is that plausible to you? We are simply following the dictates of our conscience. Do we have the freedom to do so? Do we have the right to do so? What does God’s Word say about homosexual behaviors and gay marriage?

Here are the most often cited passages from both Old and New Testaments. Please read carefully.

Do not lie with a man as one lies with a woman; that is detestable. – Leviticus 18:22

If a man lies with a man as one lies with a woman, both of them have done what is detestable. They must be put to death; their blood will be on their own heads. – Leviticus 20:13

Keep in mind laws in Leviticus were laid down for the Jews at a specific time for specific reasons. Obviously as Christians we do not believe people should be put to death today. We live under an entirely new covenant and dispensation, one governed by grace and mercy and love, not the law. However, God does not change his mind about the nature of sin or move from calling something detestable to calling it blessed or sanctioned. This should be obvious.

Because of this, God gave them over to shameful lusts. Even their women exchanged natural relations for unnatural ones. In the same way the men also abandoned natural relations with women and were inflamed with lust for one another. Men committed indecent acts with other men, and received in themselves the due penalty for their perversion. – Romans 1:26–27

Do you not know that the wicked will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived: Neither the sexually immoral nor idolaters nor adulterers nor male prostitutes nor homosexual offenders nor thieves nor the greedy nor drunkards nor slanderers nor swindlers will inherit the kingdom of God. – 1 Corinthians 6:9–10

… knowing this: that the law is not made for a righteous person, but for the lawless and insubordinate, for the ungodly and for sinners, for the unholy and profane, for murderers of fathers and murderers of mothers, for manslayers, for fornicators, for sodomites, for kidnappers, for liars, for perjurers, and if there is any other thing that is contrary to sound doctrine – 1 Timothy 1:9–10

[The Word is convicting on purpose.  The Gospel is an offense.  It is supposed to be, for only by conviction of sin are we led to repentance and salvation.]

Let’s remember the Word says all have fallen short of the Glory of God, all are sinners, and no one does good, not one. As Christians, we simply believe Christ and his Word, and the Word is obviously very clear. Demanding we act in ways contrary to what we believe is to attempt to force us to deny our Lord and deny conscience. Is that so hard to understand? Does our devotion make us homophobes by default? Of course not. Nor is it appropriate for members of the LGBT community to attack us, as we’ve seen in recent days in the wake of the passage of Proposition Eight in California.

No doubt gays will come back, saying, “You are asking us to deny our conscience telling us homosexuality is sin.” Well, somebody is wrong, and somebody is right. Logic alone disallows both parties claiming truth. Perhaps the following will help explain our point of view further.

I’ve had gay friends as far back as 1972. One old friend, who is long gone, once told me gay activism was entirely misguided. He said there was no point declaring war on the larger society. (Gays comprise 3–4 percent of the population.) He said it would only cause endless turmoil for no good reason. I think he was right. It is understood that flying under the radar is anathema to many people in the homosexual world, but this is where my friend concluded the matter for himself. The fact he was a college professor may carry weight with some people.

It pains me to think homosexual friends are headed for judgment.

What is the most loving thing I can do? Accommodate their sin as they stumble into hell or try to dissuade them from following a destructive and unhealthy lifestyle that ultimately leads to eternal separation from God? The answer is obvious. If I ignore the sin of a brother and let him fall, die, and go to hell, one of two things must be true: either I do not love that brother, or I do not believe sin will visit these consequences.

If my brother’s house is on fire, do I stand on the sidewalk and wish him well and walk away, or do I rush in to save him?

It is not an act of love to silently standby and pat people on the back while they destroy themselves.

And it is not discrimination to speak the truth in love.

We have always held to the idea of community standards of morality as defined by the majority. Several states voted against gay marriage this last go around. Is there any respect for voters out there?

So far, all states have voted against gay marriage except one. If the people in that state want to codify gay marriage, so be it.

Why must the LGBT community insist the majority submit to their vision of marriage? There is a distinct tyrannical flavor to it.

Otherwise, it is astounding to hear so-called pastors ignore God’s Word, accommodate sin—which is killing people—and bow to tyrants. Lord, help us.

As always, the Lord of love shows the way.

When the religious hypocrites threw the adulterous woman at Jesus’ feet, challenging him to give the order to stone her to death, the Master waited for a teachable moment, challenged the sinners to cast the first stone, loved the woman, and told her to “sin no more.” He restored her, not by accommodating her sin, not by looking the other way, but by protecting her and leading her into the light, by his grace.

With Christ as our example we must “go and do likewise.” We should neither condemn sinners nor codify sin into law, all the while recognizing we too are all sinners, saved only by grace, and that, “not of ourselves, lest anyone should boast” (Eph. 2:9).

Pastors who prefer accommodation to salvation lean to their own understanding, lead people to destruction, and dishonor the Lord, all in the same breath.

Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make your paths straight. – Proverbs 3: 5,6

We can no sooner force gay people to be straight than we can force Christians to be atheists. God never forces anyone to do anything. He simply invites people to enter his rest and enjoy a loving relationship with him, thereby allowing the Holy Spirit to conform us to Christ, the personification of Truth. Entering this loving relationship allows a person to enjoy the essence of true freedom.

Christians should be able to take a stand for our beliefs, and we should be able to do so in this country without being assaulted. Any objective examination of the record shows Christians do not assault members of the LGBT community.

Hopefully members of the LGBT community will try to understand Christian beliefs and confront this ludicrous idea Christians are somehow filled with hate and out to get them. It’s a lie from the pit of hell, and, somehow people know this, but they let the lie goad them to violence nonetheless.

We continue to pray for peaceful resolution, asking for an end to hostilities and an embrace of understanding, even an understanding unto salvation. Most Christians I know are willing to live and let live but cannot, as a matter of conscience, sanction gay marriage. It appears more and more LGBT people are not willing to live and let live but are pleased to fight and fight some more.

If that is the case, we are in for a long fight.
